Well hi welcome to my little blog. Just my little corner of craftiness, sewing, and refashioning. I am also a newly gluten free eater so you have a little bit of recipes mixed in here.

Cherry Blossom Dress

I finally finished (and remembered to take photos) and I am happy to finally
I used this pattern from McCalls, I cut a size 12- my normal size. And I chose sleeves. I had this gorgeous blue and red blossom tree fabric. I knew that I instantly wanted to use this fabric to make the dress.

I used a light blue for the lining. It was really an easy sew. The hardest things about this dress with finishing was getting those wrinkles out of the fabric. And then well just getting a darn picture. I have been such a slacker. But at least it is done now!




















The fit is SPOT ON! I did not have to do any alterations. I did hem it to the length I want, but I do that on all of my dresses and skirts (hence why I sew for myself). But seriously I could not have been happier with the fit. I would totally do this pattern again. As you can also see btw, there is a lot of fabric in the skirt with all of the box pleats.

Cheers,
Lauren

These dresses are really trendy in england at the moment! It's fun to make boutique dresses but without the £40 price tag!
